Recreating companies for the next era
We make sure you are driving the transformation, not just reacting to it.People
Traditional industries need to figure out their role in the post-industrial era. Technological disruptions, increasing understanding of environmental and social costs of current operational models, and distrust in traditional institutions ability to solve global challenges are rapidly changing the operating environment of businesses. The operational models that created value in the past do not solve the challenges they create. Thus, the right question to ask is what kind of role companies will take in the future?
THE VALUE WE DELIVER
The current transformation of the operational environment leads to a situation, where the societal role of companies, the approach to corporate strategy, and business models will be radically altered. We help companies to navigate in the changing world and renegotiate their societal role. With our broad perspective of the ongoing societal transformation, we push companies to become forerunners. Our radical strategy approach helps companies to find bold future visions, identify and launch future-proof strategies and create the future with new partnerships and experiments.

Strategic foresight and future visions
In order to create a new kind of company, there is a need for a radically different approach to making strategies. Our combination of foresight and strategy reshapes it to genuinely steer the company and its operations towards the future.
Creating new partnerships and strategic experimentation
In order to generate fresh ideas and make a difference, companies need to collaborate with each other. Nobody is capable of changing the world alone. We turn strategies into reality with our novel approach to building partnerships and implementing new ideas with experimentation.
